Eta Pi surprises chapter advisor with donation

The brothers decided to forgo their annual “Mountain Weekend,” for which they budgeted $10,000, and instead donated it to Scott Hucks’ foundation. However, they did not stop there. Chapter president Christopher Brochu reached out to Head Football Coach Joe Moglia to aid in the chapter’s fundraising efforts. Through Coach Moglia’s generous donation of his time and effort, the original donation was matched; providing a total of $20,000 to Scott Hucks’ cause. CCU president Dr. Dave Decenzo, Head Football Coach Joe Moglia, Pi Kappa Phi president Chris Brochu, university alumni president Brian Forbus, and Bobby Moore of the Pi Kappa Phi alumni chapter presented Scott with a check as a small contribution to this great cause. Over 50 alumni and over 60 active brothers, along with friends and family of Scott were in attendance for the check presentation. The presentation was taped and played at halftime of the homecoming football game on the video board for all to see.

Hucks, a local district attorney in Conway, S.C., was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis nearly three-and-a-half years ago, expecting to lose most of the function and range of motion in his limbs due to the potential advancement of the disease within the next five years. With the help of the Will Andrews Foundation, a local foundation benefitting those affected by chronic or life threatening illness, Scott has been able to generate $100,000 in donations, mostly from local sources. If Scott reaches $150,000, he will be able to receive treatments for MS and will not be subjected to additional damage that the ailment has already done to his body.
